    The one shot I have no faith in is chipping just of the green, an example is the flag is 10 yards away with 4 in downhill, I hit it 6 yards fully expecting the 4in to do the rest, it goes 5 yards and stops, it just doesn't make sense. My question is you mentioned always putting backspin on chips does that apply also to pitching, you didn't say. I also have to assume that different balls and clubs have to factor in, I use Max wedges I rarely use the spin because it will pull the ball of the green if your not careful. Where you choose your clubs and the action, if I read it right it suggest if you chip the ball with backspin it should go the distance and then stop dead, I tried this on an 8 yard chip with a 60 degree wedge, it flew by 7 feet, so at this point I'm really not sure what to expect from chipping and pitching, on the brightside my flop shots are what save me, from 15-33 yard I can usually drop it within 3 feet, it's under 15 where I have the trouble, any help much appreciated.

    Jim, do you want to handle this?

    It does seem there are chipping naysayers.

    The original advice, BTW, was developed by Icon when he was on the "outside." All values were based on full backspin, but the spin was weak in those days.
